mamou is exactly right. mallards, pintails, coot. use any decoy they will land. the only thing i have found is a spinning wing decoy helps (if you use them). teal arent the smartest ducks in the flock. a dozen of anything will be more than enough. with teal its all about LOCATION. they have one path they fly everyday. find it and you will killl birds.

for calls i use a whistle and a hen teal, but a mallard hen would probably work. make quick higher pitched notes if you can.

if they shoot the mojo you might wanna keep an eye on them (that sounds dangerous) back to calling question. the teal is harder than the mallard even though there's only one basic call a teal hen does. 3 or 4 quick notes in a down step. just quack. quack. quack. make it sound as if the hen is excited. go to this site and listen to the recording of the teal. http://www.birdweb.org/birdweb/bird_details.aspx?id=74
its not rocket science, but i can understand bein new to it. actually if you just use the whistle and just do one peep every now and then you'll get birds. you'll find that teal come in so fast you dont even have time to call.
hope this helps.

If your going to the Red youll have plenty of people to watch, theyll be plenty close enough for you to see how its done. :rofl: :rofl: :hammer:
If they're dumb enough to be lured in by plastic you're really just doing them a favor.

Know your target before you pull the trigger.

Teal

Postby BigBirds » Mon Aug 13, 2007 5:19 pm

All ya need to hunt teal is 12 decoys and a duck commander teal call. Hunted 10 times last teal season and killed 40 birds. You just got to be where they want to be . Matter of fact we were on shy of a limit one day and decided to pick up and I motored the boat in the decoy killed the motor was loading everyone up and a teal skirted the pond I whistled him in with me mouth and my buddy who was short one shot him. Moral of the story they aint that smart, I had no shirt on and the motor on the boat is Johnson white.
WAIT!!! let him land first

I am a little late for teal season, but I carry 2-3 teal decoys in my bag. I agree with all the previous replies. Once a teal decides to land in a spot, you could have a pattern set up wrong to the wind and use milk jugs for decoys and they won't care. However, they can be convinced to suck in real close to the front of the blind if you throw a few teal decoys about 10 ft off the front of the blind. Teal don't care about pattern or personal space, but they often like to hang out with other teal and will try to land on top of the smaller teal decoys.
